Hello Linux Gurus:

I'm trying to connect to Comcast's portal to the Internet
but without success.

 One thing to check out is if the MAC
address you are using in Windows ME matches the one that you are using
in Linux.
It doesn't match. Windows ME is another machine.

 Comcast will only let the MAC addr that it was setup with to
go through.
Oh my God! This can't be true. They are scum if this is true.

I'll pull out the interface card in my Windows ME machine and
install it in my Linux box to see if Comcast is scum.

I've changed MAC addresses with comcast here in davis, but you need to shut the modem off for a few minutes in between for some reason.
I can second this, but thirty seconds should be sufficient.  It is
NOT necessary to do MAC address cloning or move ethernet cards on Comcast.
Having a router of some sort is by far the most convenient solution if
you have multiple computers.
